Hermann Hesse Quote: “We can understand one another, but each of us can only interpret himself.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Once all of the Self was overcome and had died, once every desire and every urge was silent in the heart, then the ultimate part of me had to awake, the innermost of my being, which is no longer Self – the great secret.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “All men of goodwill have this in common – that our works put us to shame.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “All the books of the world full of thoughts and poems are nothing in comparison to a minute of sobbing, when feeling surges in waves, the soul feels itself profoundly and finds itself. Tears are the melting ice of snow. All angels are close to the crying person.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “To die is to go into the Collective Unconscious, to lose oneself in order to be transformed into form, pure form.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “I paint because I have no tail to wag.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “That’s like this: any truth can only be expressed and put into words when it is one-sided. Everything is one-sided which can be thought with thoughts and said with words, it’s all one-sided, all just one half, all lacks completeness, roundness, oneness.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “I have known it for a long time but I have only just experienced it. Now I know it not only with my intellect, but with my eyes, with my heart, with my stomach.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “And when Siddhartha was listening attentively to this river, this song of a thousand voices, when he neither listened to the suffering nor the laughter, when he did not tie his soul to any particular voice and submerged his self into it, but when he heard them all, perceived the whole, the oneness, then the great song of the thousand voices consisted of a single word, which was Om: the perfection.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Wenn wir einen Menschen hassen, so hassen wir in seinem Bild etwas, was in uns selber sitzt. Was nicht in uns selber ist, das regt uns nicht auf.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Life is always frightful. We cannot help it and we are responsible all the same. One’s born and at once one is guilty.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “I have become weary and distrustful of teaching and learning, and that I have little faith in words that come to us from teachers.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Romantic souvenirs had a way of attaching themselves to one when one wanted to move on, but they were not to be taken seriously.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “All I wanted was to try and realize whatever was in me. Why was that so difficult?”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “I wanted to say a prayer and tried hard to remember one, but all I could think of was silly phrases such as ‘Dear Sir’ and ‘Under the Circumstances’. In my sadness and confusion I mumbled those.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “They slept profoundly, desperately, greedily, as though for the last time, as though they had been condemned to stay awake forever and had to drink in all the sleep in the world during these last hours.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “It’s so good to know that inside us there’s a self that knows everything!”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Every true reader could, even if not one new book were published, spend decades and centuries studying on, fighting on, continuing to rejoice in the treasure of those already at hand.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “None of us knew how terribly these two fine people suffered in secret. I do not think that they ever stopped loving each other, but deep down in their nature they did not belong to one another.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Everything that is thought and expressed in words is one-sided, only half the truth; it all lacks totality, completeness, unity.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “It was fortunate that love did not need words; or else it would be full of misunderstanding and foolishness.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “He saw: this water ran and ran, incessantly it ran, and was nevertheless always there, was always at all times the same and yet new in every moment!”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Each of us is merely one human being, merely an experiment, a way station. But each of us should be on the way toward perfection, should be striving to reach the center, not the periphery.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “At one time I had given much thought to why men were so very rarely capable of living for an ideal. Now I saw that many, no, all men were capable of dying for one.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “My resolve to die was not the whim of an hour. It was the ripe, sound fruit that had slowly grown to full size, lightly rocked by the winds of fate whose next breath would bring it to the ground.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “When trying to remember my share in the glow of the eternal present, in the smile of God, I return to my childhood, too, for that is where the most significant discoveries turn up.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Searching means: having a goal. But finding means: being free, being open, having no goal.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “But be warned, oh seeker of knowledge, of the thicket of opinions and of arguing about words.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “You are not strict with him, you do not punish him, you do not command him – because you know that gentleness is stronger than severity, that water is stronger than rock, that love is stronger than force.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “You have no doubt guessed long since that the conquest of time and the escape from reality, or however else it may be that you choose to describe your longing, means simply the wish to be relieved of your so-called personality. That is the prison where you lie.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Ich sehe, du denkst mehr, als du einem sagen kannst. Wenn das nun so ist, dann weisst du aber auch, dass du nie ganz das gelebt hast, was du dachtest, und das ist nicht gut. Nur das Denken, das wir leben, hat einen Wert.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Let every reader do as his conscience bids him.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “In reality there was only one thing you dreaded: letting yourself fall, taking the step into uncertainty, the little step beyond all the securities that existed. And whoever had once surrendered himself, one single time, whoever had practiced the great act of confidence and entrusted himself to fate, was liberated. He no longer obeyed the laws of earth; he had fallen into space and swung along in the dance of the constellations. That was it.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Escribir es cosa buena, pero mejor es pensar. La prudencia es buena, pero la paciencia es mejor.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “It is extremely beautiful to belong to a woman, to give yourself. Don’t laugh if I sound foolish. But to love a woman, you see, to abandon yourself to her, to absorb her completely and feel absorbed by her, that is not what you call ‘being in love,’ which you mock a little. For me it is the road to life, the way toward the meaning of life.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Like when someone, who has eaten and drunk far too much, vomits it back up again with agonising pain and is nevertheless glad about the relief, thus this sleepless man wished to free himself of these pleasures, these habits and all of this pointless life and himself, in an immense burst of disgust.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “But though the ways led away from the self, their end nevertheless always led back to the self.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “I thought of nothing but her. I expected everything from her. I was ready to lay everything at her feet. I was not in the least in love with her. Yet I had only to imagine that she might fail to keep the appointment, or forget it, to see where I stood. Then the world would be a desert once more, one day as dreary and worthless as the last, and the deathly stillness and wretchedness would surround me once more on all sides with no way out from this hell of silence except the razor.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “You could observe people’s folly, you could laugh at them or feel sorry for them, but you had to let them go their own way.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Each one carries with him to the end traces of his birth, the slime and eggshells of a primordial world. Many a one never becomes a human-being, but remains a frog, lizard, or ant. Many a one is a human-being above and a fish below.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “That man is not yet a finished creation but rather a challenge of the spirit; a distant possibility dreaded as much as it is desired; that the way towards it has only been covered for a short distance and with terrible agonies and ecstasies even by those few for whom it is the scaffold today and the monument tomorrow – all this the Steppenwolf, too, suspected.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Oh, I know it today: nothing in the world is more repugnant to a man than following the path that leads him to himself!”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “These impulses always came from the “other world,” they were always accompanied by anxiety, compulsion, and a troubled conscience, they were always revolutionary, endangering the peace in which I would gladly have gone on living. The.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Intensity of life is only possible at the expense of self. But there is nothing members of the bourgeoisie value more highly than self, albeit only at a rudimentary stage of development. Thus, at the expense of intensity, they manage to preserve their selves and make them secure. Instead of possession by God, an easy conscience is the reward they reap; instead of desire, contentment; instead of liberty, cosiness; instead of life-threatening heat, an agreeable temperature.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Every day you are apt to see someone whom you thought you knew through and through do something that proves how little you really know people or can be certain about anything.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Disclosing his wound to this listener was the same as bathing it in the river, until it became cool and one with the river.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “The world has become lovelier. I am alone, and I don’t suffer from my loneliness. I don’t want life to be anything other than what it is.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Govinda was standing in front of him, dressed in the yellow robe of an ascetic. Sad was how Govinda looked like, sadly he asked: Why have you forsaken me? At this, he embraced Govinda, wrapped his arms around him, and as he was pulling him close to his chest and kissed him, it was not Govinda any more, but a woman, and a full breast popped out of the woman’s dress, at which Siddhartha lay and drank, sweetly and strongly tasted the milk from this breast.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “I had to become a fool, to find Atman in me again. I had to sin, to be able to live again. Where else might my path lead me to? It is foolish, this path, it moves in loops, perhaps it is going around in a circle. Let it go as it likes, I want to to take it.”
Hermann Hesse Quote: “Everything was a lie, everything stank, everything stank of lies, everything feigned meaning and happiness and beauty, and yet everything was decaying while nobody acknowledged the fact. The world tested bitter; life was agony.”
